GENERAL SAFETY KIT   

 

SUIT YOU!

Using your PWC in the winter months can be fun, challenging, rewarding and very cold!  While others are wrapped up nice and cozy in front of the TV and dreaming of spring-time what's to stop you wrapping up inside your drysuit and blasting away the off season lethargy with your buddies!

Give special thought to the clothing you wear under the drysuit.  Choose materials that will wick moisture away from the body and are quick drying in case of your suit developing a small leak.  Steer clear of cotton for these reasons.

Most prefer to wear thermals, and and a fleecy all in one under-suit (wooly bear).

 

The hardier soul's wear steamers (winter wetsuits, usually 5mm neoprene).
